CNN’s Anderson Cooper Beats Fox, MSNBC At 10 P.M. In Demo

Cable news ratings, March 17, 2011:

•On Thursday, Fox News kept its perch atop the primetime cable news ratings, with Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity turning in the two top-rated shows in all of cable news. CNN’s Anderson Cooper slid from the ratings highs he hit earlier in the week, but still had the third highest-rated show on the night, with his AC 360 taking first place at both 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. among viewers 25-54. (Cooper’s 11 p.m. hour was also top-rated among total viewers.)

•MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow saw her ratings improve Thursday, reaching 326,000 viewers 25-54, but the show was still in third place behind Hannity (665,000) and CNN’s Piers Morgan, who had 453,000.
